Archive for the ‘Testicular’ Category

Being a disease wrapped in a mystery, cancer is often associated with myths and theories. These are wrongly interpreted.

Although any disease is misinterpreted many times, the diseases that appear in more sensitive areas seem to be more affected by myths.

Testicular cancer is also part of this category, a rare disease, but treatable.

For decades, testicular cancer was wrapped in mystery. For example, one of the theories said that riding the bicycle may cause testicular cancer.

These stupid myths were denied by scientists. Still, deciphering the truth is not so easy sometimes.

Testicular cancer is cancer that develops in the testicles, a part of the male reproductive system.

In the United States, between 7,500 and 8,000 diagnoses of testicular cancer are made each year. It is the most common cancer in males aged 20–39 years, the period of peak incidence, and is rarely seen before the age of 15 years.

Testicular cancer has one of the highest cure rates of all cancers: If the cancer hasn’t spread outside the testicle, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Even if the cancer has grown into nearby structures or has spread to nearby lymph nodes, the rate is 96%.
